Automobile enthusiasts are looking forward to the Geneva Motor Show each year to see the newest exotic supercars from the likes of renowned manufacturers such as Mercedes, Porsche, Lamborghini or Ferrari. But there are other and lesser-known players in the refined world of high-end hyper cars, such as the Swedish car maker Koenigsegg, Shelby Supercars (SSC) in the United States or the Italian design house, Pagani.

Horacio Pagani was a senior engineer with Lamborghini for many years, specializing in composite design, integration, and the work of such famous Lamborghini Countach projects as Evoluzione, the first car with a carbon fiber frame, and the Diablo, the advanced composite materials, which in their use bodywork. In 1992 Pagani Automobili Lamborghini and Pagani left Modena founded to develop and manufacture carbon fiber composite materials for clients such as Ferrari and Daimler, and pursue his dream of designing and building his own supercar.

After developing a collaboration with Daimler AG, was supplied with the latest Pagani V12 engines for its vehicles, and the Pagani Zonda presented at the Geneva Motor Show, 1999th The Zonda was produced in a variety of limited and special editions, out of pure racing cars to luxury roadster, and was both a critical success and performance, strengthening the brand in the cosmos of the Pagani supercar.

In 2011 introduced the successor to the Pagani Zonda in Geneva, the wind-inspired Huayra C9. (Pagani was born in Argentina), named after a South American god of wind, followed by the Pagani Huayra philosophical maxim that can be summarized as a combination of art and technology with precision engineering and design inspired.

The Huayra features titanium / carbon composite monocoque construction around the animal's heart: an AMG Mercedes-source M158 6.0-liter V12 twin-turbo engine that develops 700 horsepower and 700 foot-pounds of torque . The light engine was at Pagani desire to turbo lag for improved acceleration response, you configure the intercooler assembly and other changes designed to improve performance and reduce overall weight loss changed. The enormous performance of the motor via a seven-speed sequential gearbox cross that the car can release 0-60 mph in less than 3 seconds and they go to a top speed of transfer over 230 miles per hour.

On 8 March 2012, exactly one year after the introduction of the Huayra, Pagani unveiled the first limited edition model, the Carbon Edition Huayra. The Carbon Edition model has a carbon-fiber body, such as titanium / carbon composite material of the base model contrast reduces the overall weight of the vehicle by several hundred pounds. Pagani chose not to the space-time texture of the carbon fiber composite material from which the body parts are made, rather than coating the entire surface in layers with a high gloss clearcoat acrylic acid hide. The aesthetic effect is quite stunning and unique and is sure to be seeing a future trend in car design.

The Huayra Carbon Edition is truly an exemplary model of an already extraordinary car, and while no price has been chosen for this issue, since, as the "base" model Huayra lists for about $ 1.5 million dollars, the Carbon Edition is certainly list is even higher in the stratosphere of super sports car prices.
